A Downer of A Return...

Overwhelmed.

That's what I am. I can't even begin to list all the crap that's weighing on my mind. The sad thing is that I have some time to deal with things right now, but there's so much to do that I don't even know where to begin.

I wish I could say that our vacation was helpful, but not really. The conference I attended in Atlanta was okay, but not great.

Ever been in the place where you stare at the ceiling in the morning, dreading what awaits you as soon as you get out of bed? I'm not depressed. Honest. There's just TOO MUCH stuff. I've even tried delegating, but ha. ha. HA! Not helping.

GAH. I hate being in this place.

So yay... I'm back. Sorry it's not more cheerful. I'm sure I'll be back to my grumpier self soon with some typical, snarky posts (not to be mistaken with actress, Markie Post, oh she of the Lifetime Movie of the Week).

See? Even my attempts at humor suck. ;-)

Maybe I'm easy, but Snarky Post made me laugh.

Sorry you're feeling overloaded--hope it lightens up soon.

It's hard to get motivated when there is loads of drudge to deal with.

When I am there, I ask myself to do just 5 minutes. Sometimes that helps me get started.

Another thing I do is 15 minutes work then a half hour read in cycles. That works occasionally, too.

But mostly I stare at the ceiling, too.

This is no good. Maybe now is a good time to fake your own death, collect the insurance money and live happily ever after exiled to Cuba?

Welcome back! I wish I had something helpful to say, but I will just say that I hope it gets better.

don't call me MA'AM said...

lizgwiz: then you are my kind of audience. :-) Thanks!

goldennib: I did a lot of that as well... just do this one thing today, etc. And you're right... it does help. But ceiling-staring is SO much more productive, don't you think?

wire: OOOOH! Great idea. Now, what to do with the children? Take them with me? I don't want to be one of THOSE moms though.

-r-: sounds good enough for me... thanks!

I will keep making podcasts for you - even if that means I have to watch Big Brother.

Sounds like classic vacation hangover. Are things any better now?

alyssa: huzzah! I even reviewed you all on iTunes, cause I'm nice like that.

Not so much vacation hangover as it is "life hangover," I think. Hopefully things will be looking up soon.
